Freezer and fridge warm, no ice in freezer, compressor on, fans work, I change the defroster computer board and the thermostat, it's still not working.

Its either the compressor start relay or compressor itself thats bad. You will need to pull the refrigerator out from the wall, then remove the lower back access panel, then feel your compressor and see if its warm and vibrating. If its warm but not vibrating and the condenser fan next to it is running, then Just unplug your refrigerator and take off the compressor start relay and shake it, if it rattles inside its bad.

If no rattle, then use an ohm meter to check it for continuity, normal would be 0-1 ohm.

Compressor start relay device assembly here for your model:
Manufacturer part number 67005560 is RepairClinic item number 1159182
67005560

But from my experience, 9 times out of 10 its the compressor itself on this model that goes bad itself, check your warranty, some have up to a 10 year warranty on the compressor.
